It looks like it was a whale of a ride.

A pair of kayakers in Argentina ended up on top a whale after it dipped under their boat and lifted it.

According to YouTube user gisela6652, the kayakers were paddling near Puerto Madryn in Patagonia when they paddled towards some whales.

The video was posted to YouTube on Sunday, with a post saying: “An incredible evening, lots of sun, kayaking and whale watching."

“As we watched from the top of the kayak, one of the whales turned and came towards our direction and lifted the boat twice!!”
